Ratings for Dr. Baruch Eisenberg
My 3 children have been with Doctor Eisenberg 17 years( minus the 3 years we left state, 2 of which from birth. The kids love him! My son has mental health issues and my youngest has CP. Dr Eisenberg has always pushed them to excel. He makes the children understand whatever the issue is and how they could participate with their care(which I think is very important).
Excellent Doctor, he takes time to listen to you (unlike some other doc's that the nurse does all the work and you see them for 5-min). He was willing to see my son once on Christmas Eve when he was really sick and he is the one that calls you back on emergency calls, not a nurse or some "group" that doesn't have a clue about your kids history. He is the best person ever in giving kids shots too, they never see it coming or seem to feel it. This doctor does not give wishy-washy answers or say "maybe". He has office hours on Sunday and has a relationship with Genesis that has Saturday hours.
We love Dr. Eisenberg. He takes his time with his patients and is listens to what I have to say as their mom. More importantly, he listens to my children and asks questions that they can answer. He is thoughtful in his response to any medical condition that presents. As a new mother, he helped me to stay calm and not fret and worry about every little thing going on. Dr. Eisenberg is always accessible when I need to bring my children in or even if I need to speak with him on the phone. He is the best for my family!
When my son was born prematurely, Dr. Eisenberg was recommended to us by a family member. We went and all seemed well. After my son recieved his MMR shot and a flu shot he became very ill. Around the age of 2 1/2 he started to show some signs of Autism. I asked the doctor about these signs and I was told that they were phases he was going through and would grow out of them. My son had horrible yeast infections as a baby and was put on Nystatin. Again, I was told this was just a phase. I finally got fed up and removed my son from Dr. Eisenberg's practice. He is now seeing a wonderful doctor and is in the process of being diagnosed Autistic. My son is now 4 1/2. Thanks to Doctor Eisenberg's lack of concern and attention and dismissing my child he has not recieved the services that he has needed in the past two years. I am now scrambling to get my child what he needs before school age hits. My recommendation is do not let your child see this doctor!!!!! He is horrible!!!
Let me start by saying that my son LOVES Dr. Eisenberg. That said, I have been sorely disappointed by the quality of actual medical care my son has received. Dr. Eisenberg can be quite dismissive when it comes to a parent's evaluation of their child, and when my son finally was diagnosed with an issue, was more of a hinderance than a help. He flat out refused to coordinate my son's medical care, and never seemed to know what was going on in his case. The last two specialists that I have had to see with my son have both taken it upon themselves to tell me I need to get a new pediatrician. So I guess I will have to do that. I'm really sad because my son liked him so much, and understand to a degree that if you are the only Dr. in a practice it must be difficult. However, I am both sad and angry that he didn't take my son's health as seriously as I thought he should.
Does not take new parents seriously. Missed a very serious GI problem with my son that was diagnosed by another doctor after I had been telling Dr. E about for 2 months. He also does not seem to have a good knowledge base as many of our visits left us feeling as though we were deciding the care for our child instead of him.
We really like going to see Dr. Eisenberg. He runs his own office where he is the only doctor there. He is very child friendly, and my boys are always excited about going to see him! He always smiles and tries to make them feel very comfortable. He asks me questions and listens carefully to any questions or concerns that I may have so that when we leave, we all feel good about the visit.
Dr. Eisenberg is a Pediatrician. He is fantastic. My son loves going to see him. He asks both of us tons of questions and shows genuine concern for our well being as a family. He is just as interested in how my son is doing in school and how he feels about dreams. His approach is great. I can't say enough wonderful things!
